Davies, Nicola Deadly: The Truth about the most Dangerous Creatures on Earth 61 pgs. Candlewick, 2015. $7.99 NONFICTION
features information about animal predators and the weapons and tactics they
have adapted to capture their prey. Includes creatures like Tigers, Bears,
Electric Eels, Wolves, and many many more. Cartoon illustrations are numerous.
A message of human safety and the conservation of predators is the conclusion.
This is a hilarious
and reader friendly book that makes learning fun. Its not enough information
for a report on any given creature but a very entertaining overview that has
broad appeal from 1-6 grade. I loved the information about safety around these
creatures since many people blame the predators for attacks on humans. Buy in
hardbound only, the paperback is extra easy to destroy!
